Which charged air tube?

I want to replace my stock charged air tube (from turbo to intercooler). It's smashed for clearance where it goes around the alternator which has to be killing air flow. Can someone recommend some good ones to replace it?

You too must have dual alternators, and therefore, the hot side CAC tube with the "necked-down" section. I dont think you have any options unless you remove the lower alternator, allowing you to use a CAC tube from a single alternator vehicle. That being said, I've heard that the "necked-down" version flows more than enough air for even a mildly tuned 6.0L.

A CAC tube from a single alternator truck WILL FIT! I know it's counter intuitive, but the non-clearanced tube does indeed fit-I have one on my truck! PM sent (I have a spare if you are interested!)

I got your PM and will replay in a bit. No one makes aftermarket CAC tubes for these trucks? That one in particular would be easy to make.

The little woman has a 2006 Harley edition F250 CCSB 4x4 6.0 and her's has the tube that isn't necked down. I'll have to look and see if she has dual alternators or not. Seems like we would have the same setup. Mine's just like hers but a 2005.

Banks has both tubes as part of their intercooler setups. CFM has a cold side tube. I cant recall any other companies that make tubes for the 6.0L.

There aren't a lot of alternatives because there isn't much room for improvement. The reason the cac tubes have a replacement is because later models are plastic. I fdoubt an aftermarket tube designed for a single alternator would fit a dual alternator truck. You're stuck with an OEM tube methinks.
